Cheri Speak

Are you listening?

Wish Granted! Thank You, WordPress!


Well, lo and behold, wishes really do come true!

Yesterday I participated in the WordPress DailyPrompt. It appeared the WordPress team was in a wish granting mood so I laid out  “3 Wishes WordPress Can Grant Me“, hit that “Publish” button, said a prayer, lit a candle, crossed my fingers [and toes] and myriad other things to generate good juju.

I am not sure what everyone else asked for, I read a lot of posts yesterday, but I particularly asked for WordPress related things to better my odds.

It Paid Off!!!

Today I was running around like a madwoman doing errands etc. and was pleasantly surprised to come home, log in and see this Tweet from @postaday…

@CheriSpeak Nice response to the “3 wishes” prompt. Also, check your email 🙂

Drum Roll Please

So, of course I dashed over to my blog’s email to see what they sent and found this email!

How Freaking AWESOME is That?

Thank you very much Michelle W. and the rest of the WordPress Team.

You guys are wonderful and I will have a lot of fun playing with this new, “Perk” you have so graciously bestowed on me.

Take that, Klout!

WordPress is giving you a run for your money!

The Moral of This Story?

It never hurts to ask.

Often times we never ask because we are afraid to hear a “No”, when the truth is, if we don’t ask we will never hear a, “Yes”.

This rule holds true in any circumstance, whether personal or business related.

Be fearless!

I was and I was rewarded with a free custom upgrade for Cheri Speak!

Thank you again, WordPress, for being such a great platform and for the outstanding “Perk”!

    I thought you were going to be freshly pressed… but an upgrade is always good.

    That’s pretty awesome, Cheri. & You’re right – we shouldn’t be afraid to ask.

      I really am surprised!!! And yes, I learned a looooong time ago that being fearful to ask is not a good thing.

    Good on ya! And good on WordPress. One of my favorite mottos: you don’t get if you don’t ask.
